AutoTrader.com surpassed $1 billion in revenue in 2011 for the first time.
The company, however, withdrew a $300 million registration for an initial public offering in January. And it created controversy in April when it borrowed $400 million to pay its shareholders a one-time cash dividend on the eve of the registration.
AutoTrader posted 2012 revenue of $1.2 billion, while Manheim posted revenue for the year of $2.7 billion.
